1. LWV CVA Program Planning - Tuesday, December 3, Pot Luck Luncheon provided by the LWV CVA Board of Directors
All members as well as the public are encouraged to attend the annual Program Planning meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 3, at 11:30 am, at the New County Office Building, 1600 Fifth St. The LWV CVA Board of Directors will be providing a pot luck lunch, as we consider Program Planning at the Local and National levels of the League. Do we wish to retain current positions, to act on them, and/or to begin new studies with the goal of establishing consensus and positions for action on other issues? This is what your League of Women Voters is all about and program planning is your opportunity to weigh in. You can find a list of Local Positions in our 2013-2014 Membership Directory.

2. LWV VA Pre-Session Women's Roundtable - Richmond, Wednesday, December 4.
Join us on Capitol Square in Richmond on December 4th to hear first hand about the pressing issues that will come before state legislators. The day begins with The Pre-Session Women's Round Table (free) in House Room 3 followed by a luncheon meeting ($35) and keynote speaker in Senate Room 3. As always, speakers from widely diverse sectors are being invited. Speakers include non-profit advocates and members of the Governor's cabinet.
Networking with activists and many advocacy groups is one of the top reasons given for attending. A full morning of five-minute power speeches from issue experts who have been on the front lines during General Assembly sessions will preview, predict, and prepare us for action in January. These experts have vast diverse experiences in witnessing and influencing a wide range of legislation - governance, education, health care, juvenile justice, women's rights, voters' rights, election laws, open government, ethics, safety, environment and conservation, etc. Representatives from the Governor's Cabinet enlighten us on their priorities.
December 4 th is just one month after the election so the transition to a new administration and changes in Delegates will create an atmosphere of anticipation not to be missed.
